Read Me First; An introduction to the Caleb DRC hubs
THE NUMBERS IN PARENTHESES
2. The numbers enclosed within parentheses refer to footnotes giving pertinent documentation, calculations and annotations. They may also direct you to additional hubs( my own and others), or to The Wormwood Letters, which is a publication I began writing many years ago. These footnotes will be ongoing( currently taking place, progressing, evolving), and I'll be occasionally adding to them long after each hub is "published." It takes much longer to complete all footnotes to a hub than it does to write the hub itself, and there are several hubs I want to complete--especially some on the complexity of DNA-- before spending much time on their footnotes. Besides, Hub Pages seems to have a rather informal format which puts documentation at a lower priority than does more formal works as book publishing or encyclopedic articles. As of October 15th, 2011 nine hubs have been "published" but from now on at the end of subsequent hubs I will mention which footnotes have been completed to which hub so interested readers may check them out.
THE WORMWOOD LETTERS(WLs)
3. I want to incorporate these hubs into the WLs. This is why the first hub, "Is There Proof the Bible is God's Word? Pt 1", is written as a letter from John to Richard, both of whom are characters in the WLs. The format of Hub Pages is different from that of the WLs; therefore, putting sections of the WLs on Hub Pages in order to make sense of the hubs will ruin the continuity of the WLs but not their purpose: to glorify God and lead others to Christ.
THE PURPOSE OF THESE HUBS
4. Occasionally I'll write hubs just for fun as, "Appreciating God's Creation, But Then . . . A Funny Thing Happened," but generally my hubs will focus on God's mandate to take Him seriously; that is, to do what He said, and to meet the conditions He prescribed for salvation, which---just to make sure we are on the same page---is spending our eternal lives in heaven rather than hell. There is no reason for us to believe in those conditions unless we believe in God, and there is no reason to believe His Book, The Bible, which describes those conditions, unless we believe it is the Word of God. My hubs lay out evidences so you will believe in God, believe and adhere to His Son, Jesus Christ, and believe and comply to His Word, The Bible. This is it folks; our probationary time on this earth is now, not after death. If we mess up here and die in our sins--not covered by the blood of Christ--then we spend eternity in hell. We essentially choose to sin our way into hell. God is a Holy God, and the only way to be with Him is through Jesus Christ. The only way to do that is with a saving faith that adheres to Christ and His commandments.
GOD NEVER EXPECTED, NOR DEPENDED UPON, BLIND FAITH
5. God provides us a foundation of evidence that is inextricably interwoven with reason. He never expected anyone to blindly believe in Him, or His Son, Jesus Christ. On the contrary it is the antithesis of this; He has inundated us with evidences so that we can confidently and logically do just that---believe. Our eternal destiny is conditioned upon this one fact: we must have the quality of faith( Ephesians 2:8 with Romans 3:31) that Jesus Christ distinguished for salvation. Just believing is not going to make the grade( James 2:19). But the evidences God provides that prove He is God, and the evidences Jesus Christ provided proving He is the Son of God, and the evidences innate within the Bible proving it is the Word of God should lock us into the correct faith, and the correct Way leading us to eternal life. The design of these hubs, and The Wormwood Letters, is to give you a glimpse into these evidences.
LIST OF MATH HUBS GIVING A SYNOPSIS OF THE FINAL PARAGRAPHS CONCERNING GOD:
Hub#12.1: How to Solve 4 Simultaneous Equations with a 4 by 5 Matrix( linked); Par.14---> God taught molecules and cells to read, understand and execute information for constructive use.
Hub#12.2: Finding the Determinant and Inverse of a 4 X 4 Matrix( linked); Par.14--->God reveals mathematical insight to us. He gave us our minds, which gives us our standard of living, providing we comply with His commandments.
Hub#12.3: Math Limits; Algebraic and L'Hopital's, and Black Holes( linked); Par.19--->God is the creator of real life limits as black holes. Par. 20--->Black Holes display God's power with a force of 4.6 trillion tons, and people are made into spaghetti. Par.21--->Evolutionists cannot give the origin of anything. Why waste time studying the impossible as how random processes can do constructive work? Don't be a fool--consider the evidences God has supplied. Can anything violate entropy? Par. 22--->God's judgment and wrath with links.
Hub#12.4: Lagrange Multipliers; Extrema, costs, profits( linked); Par.16--->God gave us our minds, and His blessings, but how do we thank Him? With sin, indifference, back talk, laws contrary to His Word, and expelling Him out of public places. Brace yourself; God has a way of talking back to us.
Hub#12.5: Transforming the Fibonacci Sequence into a Matrix Equation( linked); Par.19--->Scaling construction at the atomic realm to human size. God designed and taught the emf to chance direction of constructions, and to execute complex constructions. Par.20--->Emf taught to set boundaries to constructions. Par.21--->God stores information in the structure of space, and the emf accesses this information for God's building projects. Par.22--->A criticism of evolutionary thinking and theory.
Hub#12.6: Finding the Eigenvalues of the Fibonacci Sequence Matrix( linked); Par.9--->Science and mathematics unequivocally prove that God exists; therefore, the same science and math cannot disprove God's existence. DNA has one chance in 10^50,000,000,000 of forming by random processes. Par.10--->No atheist has EVER used mathematics to confirm, or even substantiate in a small way, Darwinian evolution. Par.12--->Electron travels 5,000,000 miles per hour with an acceleration of 9 X 10^22 meters per second^2. Par.13--->2 grains of sand repel with a force of 3,000,000 tons. God's balance of electrostatic charges. Par.14--->The impossibility of DNA forming by chance. Par.15--->A challenge to atheists.
Par. 12--->Is there any time or condition that God's love is unconditional? We can choose heaven or hell---either one---for our eternal existence.
Par. 12--->Scripture, not opinion, makes the case. Par. 13--->Blotted out of God's Book of Life. Hell is eternal, so is Heaven. Par. 14--->God's anger and wrath. Par. 15--->God's love is NOT unconditional. Par. 16--->The unpopular promises of God.
Par. 8--->The Bible extirpates erroneous opinions and assumptions. Par. 9--->God's conditional love, eternal hell, and our paramount decisions. Par. 10--->Useless and destructive opinions.
Par. 10--->Satan's lie: Everyone will be saved and live forever in heaven. Par. 11--->A Bible study axiom: There are no contradictions. Par. 13--->Wishful thinking leads to eternal misery.
Par. 12--->Boiled alive and loving every second of it. Par. 13--->Sin, sophistry and sense. Saving Faith is obeying Christ, and God's Word. Par. 14--->"I have fought a good fight." Is God your Master or your slave?
Par. 5--->A source for the meaning of numbers in Scripture. Par. 6--->How God raises the dead. Par. 7--->Complex numbers make the impossible, possible. Par. 8--->Incorporating numbers of Scripture in our hubs to make them more interesting.
Par. 8--->A tornado assembling a Boeing 747. Can infinite time make evolution possible? Par. 9--->Commanded to acknowledge the evidence( Rom. 1:20); hell results when it is ignored. Par. 10--->Once called and drawn by God, then you MUST decide. Sophistry leads to hell.
Par. 6--->Tornado and nuts, bolts, wire, tires, glass; a busy tornado. Par. 7--->Atheists get all the goodies, and yet they still cannot build a viable theory. Par. 8--->Evolution is a sinking ship that never floated. Science discovers more complexity, not less. Par. 9--->Do what Christ said.
